's useful to have many people involved and the idea of having civilians an important distinction, even when we elect a general like dwight eisenhower, we elected him as a civilian. you see other countries led by generals, they're autocracies, totalitarian regimes so i'm worried about having an active duty military person. i think our tradition is good that we separate the civilians from the military. >> thank you, sir. >>. [ applause ] >> this will be our last question. >> senator paul, on the subject of holding the current administration accountable? do you think we should pursuit benghazi? and if yes, how much do you think there should be? >> yes. it's my opinion. and this is an opinion that needs to be supported by interviewing those involved. it is my opinion that i cannot believe that a military commander did not send reenforcements. i fully believe that in benghazi, a politician was involved, won't name any names. but i think someone was involved in that decision. there was a lot of discussion going on that night. there is some debate whether or not they could have gotten from italy,
